Rifts Bestiary

UPDATE: Rifts® Bestiary, Volume One – Ships October

All the pieces are coming together and should go to the printer in a couple weeks. The writing and artwork are clicking (there will be previously published and new art). All creatures are updated and new monsters add plenty of spice. The Rifts® Bestiary Volume One will be an October release. Volume Two end of November.

In addition to existing creatures collected from various Rifts® World Books and sourcebooks, it has new beasties created by me, Chuck and a few other freelance writers. This includes creatures that are not just predators or monsters, but beasts that player characters can use as war mounts, attack animals, familiars, companions and pets.

What are the Rifts® Bestiary™, Volume One and Two? We are collecting the hundreds of monsters and beasts of Rifts Earth into easy to use reference books, similar to what we did with D-Bees of North America. Only there are so many wondrous and fierce creatures that we cannot squeeze them into one book – plus we are adding a bunch of new creatures to add more fun and menace to your Rifts® campaigns. Some will be a nuisance, others pets and companions, some are suitable M.D.C. riding animals, and some are slobbering monsters.

The first two Rifts® Bestiary™ sourcebooks are being created simultaneously, right now! Between them, these two volumes compile the beasts of Rifts North America (unintelligent monsters, predators, notable animals and intelligent beings that are monstrous or animal-like in appearance or behavior) from all current World Books and Sourcebooks. Add new life to the savage wilderness of Rifts Earth (particularly the USA, Canada, and Mexico). Presented in alphabetical order, with maps showing their range and location, in two big books.

  • Monsters and animals of Rifts North America organized in two big, easy to use sourcebooks.
  • Updated descriptions and information to existing monsters.
  • Updated and uniform stat blocks.
  • New predators, exotic riding animals, beasts of burden, alien horrors, giant insects and more.
  • A map for every creature showing where it is found.
  • Fully illustrated, much of the art by Charles Walton II, along with Siembieda and many others.
  • 192-224 pages each volume – $26.99 retail – Cat. No. 896 (Volume One) and Cat. No. 897 (Volume Two). In production. Release Date: Soon – i.e., as fast as we can kick these bad boys out!

The Rifter Number 82

UPDATE: The Rifter® #82 – Ships October

The Rifter #82 is another great issue with source material for Rifts®, Chaos Earth®, Nightbane® and other game settings. My heartfelt thanks to those of you who submitted remembrances of Erick Wujcik. Readers will enjoy new insight into the life and work of the man. And there is a lot of Palladium history peppered in with these loving missives.

UPDATE: Garden of the Gods, a Palladium Fantasy® Sourcebook

Matthew Clements has been hot writing his contribution to Garden of the Gods. He is living in California these days, but will be in town soon and we will be getting together for a day to brainstorm on this book and a few other projects. Good stuff is coming your way.

UPDATE: Rifts® Chaos Earth® – Psychic Scream Sourcebook

I authorized the cover sketch after speaking with the artist, newcomer Anthony Moravian.

In the Face of Death

UPDATE: Dead Reign®: In the Face of Death Sourcebook

This book remains actively buzzing around inside my head wanting to get out. It is still planned for a fall release. There is a lot of creative energy flying around the office right now. Looking to use it to produce a lot of books.
